I had BT results for DHEAS, free testosterone and SBHG, etc, which were within range. That's why I'm concerned about DHEA and menopur.
He initially suggested down reg antagonist protocol, but I told him I'd already tried that, so he crossed that out and put some other plan on there, some cross over plan, but apparently changed his mind.
He said we best try something different and see. He said it may not work, he just wants to try something different.
That's fine, I've already said I trust him. I'm just nervous about it, that's all.
I only did Cycle's 4 and 5 with him Luv and changed the timing of transfer to days that were convenient for my Ex and I as I need to loaded up on drugs (Pethadine/Valium) as transfers are excrutiatingly painful for me due to scarring on my cervix due to past Gynae surgery so I needed a "Deso Driver" and the Ex could only get certain days off at the time due to having an A/Hole of a boss
I know at the time I was Cycling with Wazza he liked your P4 levels to be 6 and under. My original FS liked 4 and under. If you're worried. Give the Nurses a call or write an email and ask Luv.
I took his list of supplements and drugs for almost 7 months straight (including the DHEA/Melatonin) between Cycles 4 and 5 with no issues and did Puregon/Menopur protocol for Cycle 5. I also had my DHEA levels tested and yep, they were through the frucking roof as you would imagine them to be but it made no difference at all for me personally.
All my BT's were in range too to start with but I also knew that taking the DHEA/Melatonin was an experimental thing for egg quality/numbers so I decided to roll the dice as I was taking a "leave no stone unturned" approach while I was Cycling.
You can only do what feels comfortable to do for you. If you don't want to do it, then don't. Or, if you want to cut the dose down to 2 caps instead of 3 a day then do etc, etc. Do what you know you will walk away having no regrets over
He will have read your file at some stage Luv, rest assured.
Thanks for the advice love. I'm going to have to email his rooms and ask about this progesterone thing, because he didn't mention it to me and I'd like to know exactly what the level has to be before trigger.
Thanks for your post hun. I'm going to do exactly what he tells me, otherwise I'm going to have regrets, esp if I get it wrong. And clearly, I'm no expert and all confused with everything I've read.. So I'll leave it in his capable hands!!
Well there you go!!! He very well may have revised the P4 levels too?? Who knows?? Things can change quickly in "IVF World" as there's so much research being done and new technology becoming available things do tend to move quickly which is a good thing!!!
